Connectors Highlight Merchandising, App Development and Custom SVG Image Creation

Connectors Highlight Merchandising, App Development and Custom SVG Image Creation

The delivery of 35 Power Automate connectors to kick off 2022 left my head swimming with possibilities and I can’t wait to find out how you use them! The final three in our recent coverage of these new connectors span several categories: commerce merchandising, app development and images. Let’s look!

If you are using this e-commerce system, you might consider the Dynamics 365 Commerce Merchandising connector to search and browse product-related information like the category, channel, and catalog information with its actions. It connects to the Cloud Scale Unit (CSU), which is a fancy way of saying “your e-commerce system’s public-facing API that presents data to external users.”

Actions here include:

  • Get catalogs, categories or channels.
  • Get the dimension values with inventory availability for a product.
  • Get the environment configuration.
  • Get image locations, attributes of, inventory in stores, or recommendations of a product.
  • Get product variant search by dimensions.
  • Product search by IDs, or by keyword and category.
  • Perform a health check of the retail server.

You might possibly find that this connector is a little more useful when paired alongside the Dynamics 365 Commerce Ratings and Reviews connector which we covered previously when it became available.

The following two additions to the ever-growing collection of Power Automate connectors come from none other than Troy Taylor, a prolific creator in this sector.

If you currently use Quickbase, you may want to invest a little time to get to know this connector. It works with this application development platform which itself enables input from users on both tech and the non-tech side across a common platform. This new, independently published, Quickbase connector can better streamline innovation in your business with its robust list of possible actions.

These include:

  • Create, copy, update, or delete an app
  • Create, update, or delete a field within a table
  • Insert and/or update record(s), or delete record(s) in a table
  • Create, update, or delete a relationship in a table
  • Create, or delete a table in an application
  • Clone the authenticated user token with auto association to all apps associated with the new token
  • Deactivate or delete a user token

  • Run a formula 
  • Run a report

  • Get all table reports, a table, an app, app events, a relationship

You will probably want to review the specific details in Microsoft’s documentation as you begin.
